BiographyDelsol was born, and grew up, in Limoges, France. In 1996, she moved to England, attracted by the London music scene. There she met the producers Liam Watson and Ed Deegan, and became the lead singer of the Bristols, a group produced by Watson and Deegan.
That same year the group's first single, "Questions I Can't Answer", was released by Damaged Goods. Delsol toured Europe for much of the next five years with other Damaged Goods acts, including Thee Headcoats, and Cee Bee Beaumont.
After two albums and three singles, Delsol decided to pursue a solo career. In 2004, she and producer Liam Watson released No Time for Sorrows. The thirteen-track album had twelve songs in English and one in French.
Between You and Me, Delsol's second solo album, was also produced by Liam Watson. The album includes collaborations with George Miller, Pete Molinari, and Peter Bernhard. Of the fourteen tracks, three are in French.
Delsol's third solo album "On My Mind" was released in 2010. In late 2011, her song "Come Along" from Between You and Me was used in a Toyota Prius commercial.
